We have already had two paralytic

TRUTH BREAKING FORTH.
When ut Washington last June a year
ago, we wure turprived, ns we Hla'fd in
our paper a eik or so tinro, to hoar the
raving of Mr. Wise, and no one pnying
tiny more nttemii.r, to his inndness tlian if
he hud not been there, tt all. Indeed it
sucmed to be a time when the members
I) nd leisure to wiilk ubout and convene.
A few days nfler being in Philadelphia,
we were surprised on taking up a paper,
to find this very speech eulogized to the
skies, by these letter writers "as n mas
teily effort of the young Virginian a sec
ond RuifJolpli hiwr the meniiiU of the
tyrant Jickson quaked under the wt-11 di
rected fire of this nolilo nnd worthy de
scendant of Virginia's best blood," filling
up a column of n newspaper, while the
poor, duped whigs all through the country
wore echoing tho nonseime.
But of All the miserable pervrtrsion of
(ruth, uud ' fiddle luddle" about Wise and
others af scarcely greater importance,
none of the letter writers got abend of 'Y.
L.' in the Ohio Slate Journal. TIih 'Y.
L.' writes for PAV, and wou'd for money
make up as good a story on one side as on
tho other. Mr. IIanimoid tukes the
proper view of thin matter, and the coun
try would he tHe gainer if it were follow
ed: Ohi litatctman.
From the Cm Gsselte.
Mr. Wise has acquired quite an exton-
sive eclihrity in (his coun'.ry, and it may
not be amiss to look a little into tho chan
nels tlUough which he has obtained it.
As a member of Congress, his general
courso hits beon too ermtirt, to be doomed
a wixe one, He has proposed several
measures, in which his adversaries have
gained advantuge over him none, that I
recollect, in which ho has done any good.
It is not for his political sagacity, for his
statesman-like intelligence, lor his poweis
of argument, that Mr. Wiso is distinguish
ed. His strength lies in bis capacity for
personal snrciiMn, and in the Theraitea
like recklessness with which he scalier it
around him. Fur I he extension of his re
putation in these ccotiiplihiiioiUs, l.e is
indebted to the- newppnpor presf, and
chiefly "to those who wiile lelt.ri from
Wathington. Yet of nil the swanh-butk-lor
speech makers in Congress, there is
no one who it more coarsely and vulgarly
abusive of newt-papers and their Washing
ton corraapundoivts than Mr. Wife. As
nno of the editorial corps, I am persuaded
Ihut Mr. Wise should not be further tole
rated in this course. Let him be efli-ctu
ally rebuked, by the total omission of his
name, in Wellington letters and nowHpa.
per publications from hunceforth, until ha
mrnds his mnnners towards those who
have built him up. What would Mr.
Wine he, if ha were thus dealt with?
One of Mr. Wiao's denunciations is to
be found in the proceedings of Congress,
in this morning's Guzctto. Mr. Hacket
can hold his own with Mr. Wiso. He
can safely say, and no doubt will any.
"Vengeance is mine, Bnd 1 will repay."
It would seem, from the subjoined let
ter, received fro) a gentleman on whom
great reliance may ho placed, that the fed
eial party have again expended their amu
niijorr In vain. A hundred guns at one
place, and a thousand ut another, and fed
eral salutes every whore, havo resounded
the victory of the fodornlisls in Maine.
If our correspondent is not mistaken, this
victory is ngaiu a detest, like so many of
ihn same sort heretofore gloried in by tha
I'edonlMs. The probability is. there is
no election by the people. Tho election
in this cane devolves on the Legislature
the House nominating, and the Senate
choosing, the Governor. This will secure
the election ol Mr. raiks, the democratic
The federal parly claim an accession lo
their strength of 10,000 in the popu'ar
vote, as shown by this election. A com-
parison of the polls will show (hat Kent,
their present candidate, has just about the
vote obtained by Mr. Spraguo, their for
merly defeated candidate. The demo
cralic vote has fallen off several thou

not being satisfactory to the democracy of

QUESTIONS FOR DECISION AT
THE OCT. ELECTION.
The people shall 'now Inki) into consid
eration how they will decide the following
Important questions by their votes this
I. Whether they wi'l justify ihe hunks
in tboir refusal lo pay thcirjlioneft debts
and thereby have a continuunee ol irre
deemable paper ii-tniei, whiih will have n
constant temjuiicy to. deprecin'o in value,
for ubout three years, as occinrcu from
ISI4 to 1817.
2. Whether they will discountenance
the measures of the Ailmmi.-lrslion to give
the former, mechnnic. und laboring por.
lions of the community, a currency which
cannot be used In ninki; ulttves ol ton poo
pie, or I" commit iiuui.'s upon tht'iii:
3. Whether they the, power to
regulaio the currency to remain, as ni
present, under ihe control of corporations
which hove ''neitUn bodies to bo kicked,
nor souls to be damned.''
4. Whether th'jy wish the con'intiance
of a baukng syMlem which enubles bunk
era to defraud Hie holders of their paper
without even a liability ol' their in dividual
properly for a redress of their wrongs.
6. Whether they will sanction the
locking tip of Ihe specie change in Ihe
vaulta of the Hanlc, and the substitution
of the pestiferous of issues Siin Platters.
These are grave questions for deci iion,
and deserve the culm consideration of the
whole I'eoft.'e. j
If tho Pcoplo wish to decide them in fa
vor of Rag Money and Shin Plasters, they ,
should vote for the Bank ticket.' - If, on
the contrary, they wish to discountenance
such doings uphold their Govvrnmont-
nnd by public indignation, cause Ihe banks
to render justice to their creditors, they
should g vo theit support lo the Demo"

BANK FKAUD AND INIQUITY.
One of the moat villainous frauds that
has aa yet come ta our knowlcdb'j- has
ust taken place in this city and along the
National Roid, by a Guvernaient Agent
Hank of Piitsburgh.
That Bmk has. for a long time been ar.t
iag as the Government agent, in paying
off the wntkmen on the National Road
and even before the lUnks suspended spe
cie payment we were informed it took ev
ery method to speculate in the public
funds, and then changing them into a
more woithltss kind to pay ofF,ihq pulic
conti actors and laborers, and "pocketing
the difference. Within a few days past
the Agent has been here, with authority
lo draw on the Franklin Bank of this city
to the amount o fifteen or twenty thou
ssnd de-llars, which he dfmandtd and re
ceived in ietie. Instead of paying this
to the workmen as the Government in
tended, the B-nk Agent has pocketed the
specie, or sold it, and made his payments
in the most worthless trash he could pick
up, oithe BunkU broker could collect for
There is no mistake in the truth of this
matter, and the indignttion every where
excited on liesring tho transaction is
great. A few such scandalous frauds as
this, and such a thing as Dank Jgenti
for Government, will find no advocate in
Ohie. Indeed the advocates for a con
tinuance of such a system, must daily
dwindle into insignificance. We predict
that the tew "contcrvativet11 at Washing
ton in one year will be looked upon in an
other I'ght than that of trtttort and tne
mie to all free governments white thou
sands of honest whigs will prefer a sepa
ration of the Government from all Banks,
rather than the continuance of such hor
rible frauds upon the people.' Such
things cannot nor trust not be brooked
the peo ile every where must rally to their
own oeleute, every boneat principle de'
mands it of them.
Ta Mr. Van Daren we say emphatical
ly, hold on to tha pure and righteous prin
ciples of his ever memorable message.
Ihe people will do justice to virtue, and
to correct principles. They cannot be
long deceived by their very waist enemies
the Banks. . .

about it last week, wo cautioned them

Fallow citizens; read the above extract

no. We trust that already
you are sufficiently convinced by tho
conduct of Banks of their evils, and
that instead of supporting (!irni, S
they now exist, you will be content wltfe-

Inquire for a moment, which of the mea'

means are you to arrive at tho knowledge
of tho truth in the case? We say, l&fca

other agreed to loan to the Batik of hya-; i

Do thoy not prove to .' demonstration,
that both of theso men are tho Irieu3s of

bo expected from Representatives ki3

these persons will aid in inquiring intoibo
frauds of the Banks punishing them aw
they deserve, and refusing to create nwr
